The pattern wants you to bind off 5 sts for the neck and then finish the row by continueing the stockinette stitch pattern (since you do this on the WS row, you're purling). Then decrease one stitch at the neck edge on the next row and the row after that. You'll have 9 sts remaining on the needle.
TKS for your reply,
Ok am a bit confused. because i ended this ST st by purling(K 5, P11) So that would mean am doing a knit row. should i have ended in a in row 5 instead of row 6 because my pattern in back on the RS. or maybe am confusing this RS wrong side thing
